Reviews

"Rushdie offers us a sweeping, birds' eye view of 50 years of good writing. He proves that there is an Indo-Anglian canon, and as he reaches our own time, he elects new contenders for future glory" -- Aamer Hussein Independent "For matters both literary and (in the broad sense) political, one of the most informative, as well as enjoyable, [books about India] is The Vintage Book of Indian Writing 1947-97... Rushdie's fine introduction to this compendium of contemporary Indian prose...digresses fascinatingly on polylingualism, identity and dislocation" Independent on Sunday "This is the most impressive regional anthology I've seen for years. But then India is an awfully big region. With a population of nearly a billion, you would expect some crackerjack writers in their midst. And here they are." -- Iain Sharp The Sunday Star-Times (Auckland)
